I do not call Linux “GNU/Linux.” I am not only referring to the kernel, but the entire system, programs and all. Why? Many other people call it “GNU/Linux.” Here’s why I call Linux just Linux.
1. The FSF is a radical, activist organization. They created one of the best open source licenses, but take a moment to listen to Richard Stallman, the head of the FSF. Once you do, it becomes clear that the organization has radical political and software ambitions. Patents, and Microsoft, are “evil” in their minds, and so are other large companies such as Coca-Cola. I personally do not think Microsoft is “evil” (reflecting the views of many Ubuntu supporters), simply because the most vocal supporters of anti-Linux talk is found in the upper-management of the company.
2. The license should not determine the name of the software.
